Mandolin strings project a brilliant sound but unfortunately are much too quiet when you play live onstage with your band. So what can you do?

So far, the solutions were passive piezo pickups for mandolins. Those are available either as transducers that stick to the instrument’s top or as installations in the mandolin’s bridge. Unfortunately, in many cases, both ways sound very synthetic and not authentic at all.

Shadow has solved these problems in an “active” way: based on Shadow’s NanoMAG pickup technology, a quad pickup has emerged which unites four active NanoMAG pickups—one for each pair of strings.

Because the NanoMAG doesn’t reside in the bridge, you won’t hear the annoying “click” like you do when you amplify your mandolin with a passive piezo pickup.

And the best feature of this quad pickup is that you are now able to adjust the output volume of each pair of strings individually and this is designed to guarantee a balanced output.

The electronics of the preamp hide underneath the supplied pick guard. With the volume, bass, and treble controls, you will be able to adjust your personal, acoustic sound. An endpin jack with a 6.3mm (1/4”) output is supplied.

Models
Model SH 927 NMG-4 suits all mandolins that are built in typical bluegrass style (F-type) while model SH 928 NMG-4 suits teardrop mandolins (A-type).
